Is there any way of setting dub to default to ldc2 rather than dmd as
the compiler of use? (I do not want to have to put --compiler ldc2 on

I have never used dub, but I know it's now also bundled with ldc2. I would assume that if your PATH to ldc2 comes before that of dmd, it would find the ldc2 bundled version of dub and it would do the smart thing(if not, that's a bug).

On the one hand Cargo works wonderfully with Rust so I had hoped Dub would work wonderfully with D. Sadly I am finding it doesn't. Possibly my fault, but still annoying. There is a Dub package in Debian. It seems to default to GDC rather than LDC, which is annoying. Meson defaults to LDC, but getting it to handle the Dub repository is going to be impossible I suspect.

No DMD installed. Seemingly Dub chooses /usr/bin/gdc over /usr/bin/ldc2. :-( --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

Cargo does not have multiple Rust compilers as an option. Dub could look to find for compiler if it is not set, but that may disappoint users who have multiple compilers installed (myself included)...

Create a file ~/.dub/settings.json with the following content: { "defaultCompiler": "ldc2" }

I don't think so, but as that's about the only option you can put in that file it's ok to use JSON.

What do you mean it failed? I did that on another computer to test and it works flawlessly for me. This configuration file can contain only two options: default compiler and urls to reach when looking for packets. It's litterally 3 lines, while I support the fact that one should never have to write XML that's about as concise as it can get.

Oh, maybe you're on windows, in which case the settings.json file must be placed in either $ProgramData\dub or in $APPDATA\dub. Relevant lines of dub.d: https://github.com/dlang/dub/blob/master/source/dub/dub.d#L165
